Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 (10.5-ounce) bag marshmallows
  • cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 8 cups Fruit Loops
  • Chef notes

    Cereal treats are a classic, but most folks stick to the tried and true rice cereal and marshmallow combo. This lineup packs in more flavor and color and is sure to brighten up any day.

    Technique tip: Save your butter wrapper, you can use it to smoosh your treat into place and keep your hands mess free.

    Swap option: Not into coconut? You can skip it!

    Preparation

    1.

    Spray your baking pan with nonstick spray.

    2.

    In a very large, microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and marshmallows together for 2 minutes. Remove from the microwave and stir, then microwave for 1 more minute. Stir until smooth.

    3.

    Add the coconut to the marshmallow mixture and stir with a spatula until every bit is coated.

    4.

    Add the Fruit Loops to the marshmallow mixture and mix until every bit is coated.

    5.

    Scrape the mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly with a greased spatula or with the butter paper (my grandma taught me this!). Let cool until firm, 15-20 minutes, then cut into 3 rows of 5 squares to make 15 treats total. Store in an airtight container on your counter for up to 5 days.
